Seventh Inning Stretches

After rain forced a suspension of play last week, the Farmingdale State College Rams fell, 14-5, to top-seeded Cortland when the game was continued 

 

In the top of the first, the Red Dragons (33-8) took an early 1-0 lead on a sacrifice fly by senior designated hitter P.J. Rinaldi which scored junior second baseman Mark DeMilio. A Max Rosing RBI single up the middle increased the advantage to 2-0, before Cortland added a pair of runs on a wild pitch and a balk to take a 4-0 lead.

 

The Red Dragons extended their lead to 5-0 in the third on a Rinaldi RBI single after senior third baseman Anthony Iacomini led off the inning with a triple.

 

In the top of the fifth, Cortland plated five more runs to open up a 10-0 advantage.

 

After the first three batters reached base for Farmingdale State (26-12) in the bottom of the fifth, an RBI groundout by junior third baseman Mike Scarlato put the Rams on the board. A Ryan Levine pinch-hit single to right scored Tom Rydzewski and Michael Marino to cut the deficit to 10-3. Senior first baseman Sal Sanquini and senior right fielder Edward Bergmann each added RBI singles to pull Farmingdale State within five, 10-5.

 

After the game was resumed in the seventh inning, the Red Dragons added a run in the eighth and three in the ninth to earn the 14-5 victory. The Rams were led by Rydzewski who was 2-for-3 at the plate with a run scored, while Levine had one hit with a pair of RBI.

Rinaldi was 3-for-4 with a run scored and a game-high five runs batted in for Cortland. DeMilio had three hits, two runs and an RBI, while Rosing was 2-for-5 with a run and 3 RBI. Sophomore pitcher Brandon Serio earned the win after throwing six innings and allowing three

earned runs.

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade.

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
